, but i'm more struck by how the video has turned from sandy, bill. i think today's numbers along with a bunch of other data we've had the last couple days has suggested the economy has more momentum going into november than we thought before. however, when we see the pictures of sandy go from essentially heartbreaking disaster to now sort of more nerve-racking social unrest, when we hear some of the stories out there, i don't think those are the kind of pictures that cause people to take long positions in stocks. i think it's a wait-and-see position. wait and see how much sandy has an effect on the economy before you can take a positive position represented by the numbers here. >> all right. so there's a lot of noise in all of this. you've got sandy. you've got the election uncertainty. you've got uncertainty about the broad economy. i can't imagine, ron that, this 100-point selloff in the dow industrials is because people want more economic stimulus and more qe. disappointment over maybe the jobs numbers show the economy is not in need enough of more qe. we've had so much stimul
